Re: To go full frame or not?

Generally the biggest reasons to favor FF are shallow DOF and being able to use FF lenses at the FOV they were intended. It sounds like neither of those are your goal.

Low light would be the third reason, but really the Sony crop sensors are so good they will rival all but the newest FF sensors. The 14mp Sony sensors were at least as good as my FF Canon 5D. The 16mp Sony sensors blow it out of the water (I sold my 5D).

The detail you see in most FF shots have little to do with the sensor size, and more to do with the skill of the photographer and lens used. Get better glass and use it properly (f8 and magnified focus) and you will have that level of detail with the Sony sensors (at least at any reasonable size of print).
